Abstract (en)

[origin: WO9956250A1] A method of providing secure user access for doorways and network computer systems is disclosed. An overall system security level is provided. A user provides biometric information that is compared against stored biometric information of each of a plurality of users to identify the individual. When the likelihood of a match is above the likelihood necessary for identification, the threshold for that user is increased. Optionally, a threshold for another user is lowered in order to maintain a same system security level. When biometric information provided to the system is consistent, the stored template is automatically updated.
